4th ISMISS Congress in Turkey on Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery and Interventional Treatments / 3th TURKMISS



Course Coordinator

“Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity.”


We would not be overly ambitious to apply Plato’s maxim to simplifying surgical treatments. To name a few would include successful results of minimally invasive and endoscopic surgeries on failed back syndrome; simple surgical drainage, even on severe diskitis, instead of complicated surgeries; percutaneous endoscopic posterior cervical applications; and contralateral endoscopic approaches.

In the ISMISS guide, the term MISS means causing less trauma. The Fourth ISMISS Congress in Turkey continues its objective with the topic, “Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery.” In 2011, the world’s most advanced authorities will once again participate in this event. In this regard, there is now a more imminent preference for endoscopic surgery when desiring less traumatic methods in today’s applications. Making it even more possible to identify disk and foramen endoscopic lesions and treatments are HD camera systems – which heighten human perception multiple times – and greater recording, archiving and classifying potential, with or without various robotic-navigation or targeting systems.

Because of spine problems in joint surgery, in addition to macroscopic or microscopic examinations, the necessity of examining without bleeding by using natural gas or liquid must be indicated to observe unattended conditions for identifying the pathologies of tissues. In this respect, new surgical solutions will be accessible through the guidance of our endoscopy ISMISS sessions. Organized on a scientific platform, the sessions will focus on surgical approaches along with multidisciplinary approaches, while encouraging team work and highlighting the philosophy of algorithmic treatment.

Each year we have continued to point out innovative studies on minimal invasive surgery. The approved studies will be strongly encouraged during this period. We have also reiterated the principle, Primum nil nocere, or “first, do no harm,” with respect to MISS – which first appeared alongside traditional surgeries but has now moved to the forefront. We invite our colleagues to an academic festive on our scientific platform.
